Introduction of New Mobility Concept

In fiscal 2016, Daiichi Sankyo Europe GmbH introduced a new mobility concept that enables employees to choose means of commuting that have a low impact on the environment while offering them safety and peace of mind. Employees are therefore able to select the mode of transportation of their choice, which includes the possibility of combining bicycles, public transportation, and other options, to commute in an efficient and eco-friendly manner. For this new concept, Daiichi Sankyo Europe has been awarded with the “Business Travel Award 2015” by the Travel Industry Club.

We have provided employees with an opportunity to take a flexible approach toward choosing their means of commuting, and this initiative is going incredibly well. Around 60 employees chose to begin commuting by bicycle within one year. This initiative is not only contributing to employee health but also to the proliferation of eco-friendly means of commuting.
